Heskey Fit for Villa Game

Heskey Fit for Villa Game

Wigan Athletic star striker and the man to put fear into Villas hearts Emile Heskey has been declared fit to face the midlanders tomorrow and spearhead the Latics attack.

Heskey was a major doubt up until yesterday following an ankle injury he picked up last week in the game against Reading, but intensive treatment and rest seems to have worked and Heskey is due to start the game.

Who will partner Heskey is open to debate, Marcus Bent has put in some decent performances of late but he hasn`t scored since the beginning of January whilst Marlon King has struggled to adapt to the pace of the Premier League.

With Antoine Sibierski being more an impact player from the bench rather than a 90 minute player it will be between Bent and King to start along side the big man and the noises coming from the JJB this week suggest that King could get a rare start to prove himself.

it will be a draw, Jonah you may slag Heskey off with him being an ex bluenose but he will be a handful for your injury hit defence

I think you will find Carew, Agbonlahor and Young slightly more of a handful for yours mate. And Laursen will have him in his pocket anyway.
